to hear a national radio hook up to hear fdr speak to them. what did that use of technology do for him? guest: it made him a national figure in ways no president had been before. it is hard not to imagine, but there had never been a time when the president before could really speak to the people and everybody heard the same thing at the same time. earlier presidents have done this, but we're just giving regular speeches that were put on the rea. he could really talk to someone in a tenement in new york city or in a form in montana. it was the beginning. we all know about that now. host: your enthusiasm is bubbling over and we can tell you had a lot of fun with this story. here is the book -- "fdr v. the constitution: the court-packing fight and the triumph of democracy." thanks to him for being with us, and for you for watching. have a great rest of the day. . . >> the impact of slowing medicare spending on its seniors. c-span2 is showing it live. president obama is talking to various groups about health care today. he will be a guest on a radio program this afternoon. we will have liv

agreement. congressional sources tell us this is just one of many possibilities now being considered by the democratic leadership and the white house. >>> in a move that some fear to be outright retaliation for opposing the president's health care proposals, a congressional committee led by congressman henry waxman sent a letter to dozens of the country's private health insurance companies demand demanding financial information on their employees. the letters reportedly not sent to other industry groups some of which support the president's plan. a copy of the waxman letter obtained by "lou dobbs tonight" shows that congress wants to know the salary, the bonus, stock option, pension and other compensation arrangements of every employee making more than a million dollars a year between the years 2003 and 2008. that letter gives health insurers a september 4th deadline to comply. the companies are not legally obligated to do so without a congressional subpoena, however. no comment tonight from the insurance companies involved. >>> one of the leaders in the fight for universal health ca
to get some reports coming in about the violence. ivan, i wanted to ask you, for the people in the u.s., you know, this ask looking eerily similar to what was going on in iraq several years ago. we were hoping that each vote would take us closer to peace and take us closer to leaving iraq at that time. now, afghanistan. 800 troops killed in the eight-year led war. does it look like the effort there is paying off? >> well, it's a very good question. this is the second presidential election in afghan history. in 2004 there was a previous election and harmid karzai was elected president and there were incidents of violence and the taliban just wasn't as strong. its revolt in the countryside wasn't as powerful and it could not have claimed to have shadow governments and shadowed courts operating in territories that it controlled and hundreds of polling centers that weren't able to open because of this threat. now, what we've seen change over the past several years, in addition to the taliban insurgency growing is the commitment from the international community. it, too, has grown. we have
